Dynamic Print Media quality? - Dreamweaver AppDev

Our Art department has been printing out an 'product Detail' page using Quark. I've automated the entire process using a form and PHP/Mysql database. Once the page is generated in html on our intranet, it can be printed from the browser print command. Okay, so far.

    Default Dynamic Print Media quality?

    will it print? Or is there a workaround to saving the html to another quality
    print media file format?

    At this point in time? No. Your only option is to generate a PDF instead
    server-side and deliver that to the end-user.

    In the future, maybe, someday, if we're lucky...browsers will support the
    multi-resolution PNG format. But don't hold your breath. ;o)

    That's what I figured.

    I may try actually using acrobat, inserting the form items directly. I know they have a Pearl plug-in so they MUST have a php plug-in as well.

    Thanks.

    On LAMP, I'd consider looking at using GHostscript...which is an open source
    version of PDF.
